team take on georgia state. the frozen spectators did whatever they could to keep warm and the concession stand sold out of lots of hot food. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> good sunday morning. no snow here. that's the good news. but we are looking at very cold temperatures and windchills in the teens in some spots. so feeling pretty cold for this time of year. and also very, very windy outside. we'll talk more about that. but as we look outside, we are looking at blue skies finally. we had the rain yesterday that has cleared out. we are waking up and walking out to blue sky. we are mostly cloudy skies across the area, but mostly sunny by this afternoon. so here's a live look outside. it's a cold one. 44 in philadelphia. winds out of the north-northwest at 33 miles per hour. that is sustained winds. those are not gusts. winds gusting higher than that. so across the board, clouds in reading. temperatures mainly in the low 40s, but we will see clearing skies to mostly sunny.
9:48 am
lots of blue on the map indicating a lot of cold air. same story as we slide down to the coast. 44 in atlantic city. delaware 44. 44 in philadelphia. so a cold morning. a windy morning. we're going to keep that in place all day long. windchills in the teens -- actually p opped up to 20 in mount pocono. 34 is what it feels like in philadelphia. and the windchill is 36. we have high pressure coming in. these two are interacting, creating these very windy conditions all day long, into the dinnertime hour, into the early part of the nighttime hours, and then we're going to see breezy conditions overnight. so winds, this is what we're looking at right now. anywhere from 33 miles per hour in philadelphia, 26 in allentown. you can see this direction right from the northwest, right from canada as you look to the north, that's where that cold air is coming from and it will stick with us all day long before we warm up on monday. winds gusting near 43 miles per
9:49 am
hour in philadelphia, up to 40 in millville, up to 41 degrees in allentown, so probably not a great day to be outdoors and do some outdoor activities, unless you're just walking. becoming sunny, too, a blustery 48 to 51. probably topping out right around 49, maybe 50. winds out of the northwest at 20 to 30 miles per hour, but gusting over 40 as we're seeing right now. tonight, the temperatures really drop. close to freezing in philadelphia. below freezing north and west down to 29. still will be breezy with winds out of the northwest. these numbers are important, because that's where we're going to start out tomorrow morning. as we head back to work, you want to get the cars started early. get the kids bundled up, because it will be a cold start to your monday, but we're going to warm it up. by monday, 58. looking good on tuesday. that is the best day of the week. 66, lots of sunshine. but still mild, 68, showers likely on thursday. 61 with lots of clouds before we cool it down on friday, and then starting next weekend, breezy,

don't want to turn something minor into something major. penn state faced maryland 37 times. they had only lost once to them. they lose at home to maryland for the first time ever yesterday. the terps, they were trying to get the rivalry going again before the game. they get an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty right there. and how classless is this? penn state players trying to shake hands with maryland players during the coin toss. quarterback christian hackenburg very frustrated and animated. not happy with the offense in third quarter, they get going. hackenburg to jesse james. that touchdown puts the nittany lions up nine. but fourth quarter, penn state maryland's wes brown makes them pay, so maryland goes up one. final minute, penn state is up three. maryland wins on the field goal. 20-19. penn state with four straight losses for the first time in 11 years. maryland's first win ever at beaver stadium, and here's their coach about that pregame handshake diss.
9:53 am
>> that's not the way we want our kids to be before the game. i apologize. >> you know what? let the rivalry begin. >> the rivalry is on. temple pulling off their first upset over a ranked team in 16 years. the powells partying like it's 1998. let's go to the link. east carolina fumbles here. temple's tavon young returns it 63 yards for the owls' touchdown. temple would win the game with only 135 yards on offense. east carolina had 428 yards, but the pirates with five fumbles. kenny harper touched down for the owls and temple wins 20-10. congratulations to the owls. big win. villanova quarterback john robertson leading them into action against richmond. third quarter tied at 3-3. robertson. that is a five-yard touchdown. but nova misses the extra point
9:54 am
so they're only up 9-3 and that comes back to haunt them. less than two minutes later, richmond's michael rocco scores and they get the extra point, so nova loses a tough one. their seven-game win streak is over. penn lost and delaware won. i'm john clark with your sports. enjoy the rest of your weekend.
